Amazon China registers to provide ocean freight services
(Reuters) - Online retailer Amazon.com Inc's (AMZN.O: Quote) China division has registered to provide ocean freight services, which allows it to coordinate shipments between China and the United States, according to a Federal Maritime Commission filing.
